LSESU Gold STARS Award 2017, 2018, 2019 & 2020
Basketball is a brilliant sport to get involved in, especially at LSE. We have a professional coach and our players range from complete beginners to advanced players. Our club has included lots of freshers, masters and general course students over the last few years - we welcome everyone!
The club has taken sanitary measures to stay open and give our lovely members a good time although the COVID-19 situation! ;-)
- balls will be disinfected before each training and game
- hand sanitizer will be provided to our players before each training and game
- trainings will be outdoor (until November at least) to limit the spread of the disease
Good news! Trainings are maintained this year!
We are excited to welcome you in our club. Our trainings are opened to all basketball levels (beginner, intermediate, and advanced). Our professional coach will adjust sessions to fit our members' level!
According to governmental sanitary guidelines, we will train between 1 and 3 times a week on a court in central London.
Due to COVID-19, our teams will only be competing in the second term. Some friendly games are however planned in the first term!
We play in two leagues:
- BUCS South Eastern 2B
- LUSL Intermediate Premier
Our games usually take place on Wednesdays (BUCS) and Sundays (LUSL) during term time.
Our teams reached the 4th and the 2nd position of their league last year.
The social aspect of the club is one of the unique things about our team and will be a highlight of your time at LSE! Your committee has prepared COVID-friendly socials that will allow you to make friends while staying safe !
Usually, every Wednesday, we party with other clubs and then head to the great Zoo Bar in Leicester Square. Because the club will be closed this year, we have prepared plenty of alternative activities such as movie nights, picnics, team dinners, volunteering activities, dart nights and lunches. We can't wait to see you there!
Every year, the committee organizes a trip somewhere in Europe. Amongst many destinations, our members went to Amsterdam, Paris and Budapest!
In 2018, along with the Men’s Basketball Club, we competed in Paris in the Les Parisiennes 2018 Sports Tournament. We also travelled to nearby towns to compete in away games which is a great way to see different parts of the country.
